Powerful Ways to Connect

The more products and services we help each other sell, the more jobs we create in the cities we stand for.

To join EQ's paid membership program is to keep your dollars in your city and support others developing talent for your city.

Marketing Momentum

Marketing co-operation means a thousand problems solved: reaching enough prospects, managing acquisition costs, defining message tone, understanding buyer motivations, meeting information needs, qualifying leads, brokering introductions, establishing follow ups.

Co-Marketing Content

Momentum comes from finding new peers who share your vision. EQ establishes common ground for members to team up on content marketing strategies that expand all of our reach together.

Data-Driven Strategy

Drawing upon decades of digital marketing experience, we share web analytics data to help you design an effective content marketing plan. Not just for EQ but search engines and social media too.

Reduce Cost-Per-Lead

Just like problems and burdens, a marketing cost shared is a marketing cost halved. Close campaign coordination by means partners can distribute the cost of marketing according to their means.

Potent Reasons to Collaborate

There are two types of capital in Capitalism: assets and cashflow. Investors need assets but communities need cashflow.

To join EQ's paid membership program is to distribute the means of production (to knowledge workers in the information economy) before distributing the profits.

Creative Intelligence

The EQ technology stack enables businesses and brands; employees and owners; councils and corporations; creators and influencers, to co-operate under a common purpose and collaborate as a singular voice engaged in fulfilling the economic promise of our city.


The EQ platform, publication, and program establishes a commons for the innovation community to congregate intellectually and creates opportunities to explore how we understand each other and communicate.


The best sales and marketing strategies target a very specific issue and dive into a niche. Our publication will help you set the tone for plumbing big ideas and digging deep into real-world information needs.


Information overload both overwhelms users while crowding out other voices. Our program will help you define the north star of your brand voice while our platform shares the direction our readers are going.

Empowering Context to Co-operate

Let’s empower everyone to become successful knowledge workers creating wealth in the information economy.

To join the EQ paid membership program is to creatively combine our passions and channel your purpose through the innovation community's sense of place, priority and direction.

"Jonathan Allen and EQ are an invaluable asset to any company. When we were seeking insights on how to best apply to get our foreign cofounder’s 0-1 visa, Jonathan was not only able to give easy to understand and actionable advice, but he also used his network and resources to build a strong case for the application. Thanks to Jonathan and the whole EQ team I am happy to say the application was successful and our cofounder now has the right to live and work in the US. I highly recommend working with them!"

Aiden Livingston
Founder & CEO, ThermoAI

"When WayLit was applying for Arch Grants, EQ was super helpful. We wanted to make sure our company communicated the vision succinctly and vividly. EQ helped us with everything from simple word substitutions to making the overarching narrative as compelling as possible. We did win an Arch Grants in 2019 and I'm grateful for the fantastic advice from EQ."

Satya Mishra
CTO, WayLit

"We partnered with EQ to develop a weekly online talk show focused on the fast-growing St. Louis startup scene. While our initial collaboration was meant to be just an experiment, our relationship grew from there. Whether it was a referral to a new client or an introduction to an ideal guest, Jonathan has always been ready and willing to help us take the next crucial step in the right direction. We were even able to secure a featured interview booth at MDMC through our partnership where we met many of the event's top speakers! If given the opportunity to partner with Jonathan or EQ we would strongly recommend doing so!"

Co-Founder, Connect Marketing

"EQ's mentorship was a great blessing during my participation in UMSL's startup competition program, Entrepreneur Quest. Jonathan gave so much effort and attention to all of the individuals he helped. There have been countless times he would provide loads of information to me—pouring into me, encouraging me, pushing me to think outside the box and ultimately challenging me. So much that an idea became reality within a matter of weeks with the help of EQ. I was seeking advice on a concise pitch. He helped tremendously with wording, instilling confidence in me along the way. I appreciate the genuine experience I had learning from Jonathan."

Destini Clark
Founder, Beauty Wonders

"To me, entrepreneurship is about asking oneself the important questions. And how you choose to answer these questions can be the difference between creating something successful, or something not-so-much. EQ was extremely instrumental during the investigation phase. EQ's Editor-in-Chief, Jonathan Allen, never did the work for us, he simply inquired. Questions like how do you plan to target your target market, what message are you sending them, and WHY are you sending them this message are all questions that have helped AceOff grow."

Jamal Hoffman
Co-Founder, AceOff

"SEO has propelled our business growth — our content platform is among the fastest in our industry. Our success was powered by strategies, tactics and advice from Jonathan Allen, Editor-in-Chief at EQ. Jonathan came through for us, helping us cut through the noise about SEO, to get down to the nuts and bolts of building a successful web platform. If you're trying to grow a content platform, or just trying to wrap your head around whether SEO is the right strategy for your business, I strongly recommend that you take the time to speak with Jonathan and leverage EQ's resources."

Luke Babich
Co-Founder & COO, Clever Real Estate

"Jonathan Allen was one of the first people we met in St Louis, and he has helped us a lot, especially on our first steps in the city, telling us about the Arch Grants Application, helping us on our crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo and sharing his network with us. The Arch Grants Recipient Award was very important to Key2Enable to establish ourselves in St. Louis and in the United States. With his help, we were able to create a successful launch campaign on IndieGoGo and keep growing strong with the help of lots of people that Jonathan has introduced to us."
